Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!
Everything in Die Another Day was supposed to be a homage, too. Not all of it worked.
Most of it didn't.
Two things killed that film: the homages and Berry. The teaser and most of the first act worth both brilliant without either. Both the homages and Berry showed up, and the whole thing went strait into the toilet.
If you can read this signature, you're dying.
